StatoilHydro's Oseberg Back on Track After Fire

Production on StatoilHydro's Oseberg field center, Oseberg South, Oseberg East and Tune has resumed after the small fire in a switchboard room on the Field Center on June 15.

The field center and the three other fields associated with the field center's processing plant have been shut down during the cleaning and repairs of the switchboard room and the involved equipment.

The gradual start-up of the oil and gas production and the gas exports from the four fields started Tuesday morning. The fields are expected to be back on full stream in a few days.

Production at Brage, Oseberg C and Vesfrikk, which transport oil through the Oseberg field center, was resumed on Monday, June 16, and has not been affected by the repairs.
